at the conclusion. when general andrew jackson achieved this spectacular triumph in new orleans. as we will see the language of love proves pivotal to the public's narration of these events. win or lose, americans found their imagination captured whenever battle sagas were replayed as love stories. no matter how dire the events of the day, pro-war commentators could always be counted on to put a romantic gloss on public adaption. the war of 1812 provided an ideal moment for americans from anonymous unknowns like the author of that soldier sally to leading nationalist to mold the meaning of love of country. war supporters worked to portray the conflict is a romantic adventure, one in which dashing young men went to war and won the hearts of patriotic maidens, and one in which the thrill of romantic love contributed directly to the low of victory. now before i take you on an unconventional chronology of the war i do want to first pause to take a careful look at contemporary theory of political economy. you are going to have to bear with me for 10 minutes or so and i promise we will get back to so
in cairo, egypt. steve, thanks. jesse jackson jr. out of congress now but not out of the woods by any means. the democrat from illinois submitting his resignation yesterday just two weeks after voters reelected him for his ninth full term. now it came after he had been absent for many months citing inpatient treatment for bipolar disorder but on top of his health battle, the former congressman is also facing a federal investigation among other things accused of misusing campaign funds to fix up his home. now jackson could face the fallout from that probe. even though he is no longer holding public office. peter doocy has the latest from d.c. >> some folks in illinois are now asking why congressman jesse jackson jr. waited until 15 days after the election to resign instead of letting voters select his successor on november 6th. congressman bobby rush the only person who beat barack obama in an election is sticking um for the embattled 47-year-old. >> i don't think that anybody has been duped. i think that that this is a process that no one really knew exactly what was going to happen. >> jac
, another tremendous example of a vicious, vicious election. john quincy adams versus andrew jackson. andrew jackson was accused of being an adulterer and bigamist because of a cork in the divorce proceedings of his wife, rachel from her first marriage. this something that was circulated around the whole country called the handbill was a pamphlet that was posted throughout the country, showing the coffins. these are the man andrew jackson had supposedly killed, either as a general or ordering the execution. so being caught a bigamist, an adulterer and murderer and having them spread around the country widely wasn't that unusual. we like to think the good old days in powdered weeks. politics have always been a nasty business and it's always been a sharp knife business in the very beginning of presidential politics. >> host: is the power of the presidency changed over 44 different president? >> guest: well, i started out in "don't know much about the american presidents" to look at the very, very basic question of why we have a president. 225 years ago we just celebrated the constitution day a

, biography of andrew jackson called andrew jackson. the age of gold about the gold rush in the 1840s. the first american, about benjamin franklin and tea are about theodore roosevelt. together these books comprise not haphazardly but purposefully a history of the united states for the last 200 or so years. a number of these books have been best sellers. traitor to his class and the first american were both finalists for the pulitzer prize and you can see h. w. brands on tv all the time if you go to the history channel or turn on the tv, there he is. this book is -- i will hold this up again so you can see and recognize it easily at the book signing tend, it is a tremendous biography of ulysses grant filled with stuffed i certainly never knew and was delighted to find out. it is very authoritatively and readable. before we get to grant himself i wanted to ask bill a broad question about biography. here at the book festival there are a number of biographers. i have read several of these already, robert caro's latest volume in his massive history, biography of lyndon johnson. janet reed
is worse than the crime she couldn't contemplate arthur would be executed. he and jackson were on lives of the clock keeps ticking. >> otb cytometry and four to discuss his book, "the coming prosperity." or fessler are spoiled was in attendance at the book festival held at the annually. >> joining us at george mason gears professor philip auerswald, his most recent book is this, shrink three. here's the cover of the book. what role does fear play in development? >> well, that's a great question. they don't talk about what role does fear play in our conversation about development, so when we talk about our reality to share our ideas in the marketplace can we compete with other atheists only know three things about marketplace ideas. short-term sells better than long-term. fear sells better than hope that negative sells better than positive and exaggerated sells better than moderated. so we see a disproportionate number of short-term narratives of negative exaggerated stories essentially. so short-term, negative can exaggerated. there's good reasons for that we are creatures that grouping
. that is sheila jackson lee's district. this started back in 1975. the henry royce act was introduced it was passed. legacy of carter and extreme far left agenda was to push this outcome. >> sean: the community reinvestment act allowed people that couldn't afford homes to force banks and lending institutions to lower their standards under the belief that every american had the right to a home to be able to pay back the mortgage or not. >> this ties to the actions of not only this president but those in his administration. take over the banks. go in and advocate and put pressure through acorn like tactics and get the banks to do it. >> but what is the connection to obama and linsky to redistribution. this is the foundation of who he is? >> absolutely. what you do you put pressure on the institutions. yet the legislators backed it up by ensuring the loans, freddie mac that writes it. fannie says we'll back you up and you get taxpayer dollars used. this redistribution, warren courts didn't go faul far enough. it was only to acquire power and not really to help those people. look at slums
the final result passed. >> let's talk about another political story. the resignation of jesse jackson due to health issues and that federal investigation that's been going on for some time now. his father jesse jr. had this to say about his son outside his chicago home yesterday. take a listen. >> he's with his family. and having dinner. and having prayer. of the things a lot of folks are saying here is that if congressman jackson knew as most likely he did that he was going to end up resigning, why not do it a month, six weeks, two months ago and give someone else a >> yeah, he won a resounding victory in his illinois district on election day. he hasn't been really seen by his constituents or anyone in the congress since june. he's been at the mayo clinic i think twice for treatment there for his bi polar diagnosis and fs highly likely he knew he couldn't fill out his term and may have to that is the question that came as a resul of this announcement so soon after election day that he wasn't going to be in congress anymore. that could have maybe been avoided. if he's under all of this me
to domestic politics in last couple of minutes. this week saw the resignation of congressman jesse jackson jr. he resigned citing health preans wean he's been treated for bipolar disorder. he said he's under federal investigation. he came in with all kinds of promise. this seems to be the end of a career. >> yeah, he did, and i liked him. i thought he was an able legislator. elected in 1995. he was only 30 when he came in, went on the appropriations committee. and moved beyond his father's shadow. was involved in bringing clean water to his own community, and scholarships and funding for preparatory schools. he did something beyond what was predicted for him. but he got-- he got sucked up in one of the terrible scandals, not simply illinois. when a governor, especially a corrupt governor like rock blagojevich, wants to apont a united states senator and the bidding and auction gets in, and he allowed himself, apparently-- seemed to-- become involved in the auctioning of that seat to replace barack obama. and the irony is that nobody has moved, jeffrey, from a congressional black district overw

to the day after stonewall jackson's death. grant's confidence in sheridan was reported by sheridan's battlefield victories and his impressive postwar achievements. when he was president, grant once told the congressmen that sheridan had no superior as a general, living or dead, and possibly no equal. sheridan, said grant, was capable more than generalship. he could manage a territory as large as any two nations can cover any war. but sheridan was never written so high nor would have cities and counties named after him without cedar creek. a statue in sheridan circle in washington depicts sheridan on his towering warhorse in the act of rowling his army at cedar creek. green with age, a statute conveys sheridan's electric energy. lincoln and more secretary ever stand had thought of the 33 year-old sheridan too young when grant proposed in july 1864 that he command the new army of the shenandoah. sheridan's size contributed to the impression of youth that he projected. he was just 5'5" and only 115 pounds in 1864. but as grant memorably replied to one officer commented on sheridan's d

[talking over each other] dave: those big tax hikes ready to kick in at the end of the year have some big corporations worried. those corporations speaking up. find out what they're telling our elected officials coming next. tracy: why wait till you get the las vegas to party? we could have fun on the way to since city. we will tell you about a nightclub on wheels that could be in the tracks next
. soldiers at fort jackson in south carolina were provided a holiday meal with all the fixens, including 2,200 pounds of turkey. but the soldiers are on the clock, so they only get ten minutes to eat. >> give them an extra minute or two on thanksgiving. >> exactly. >> 325 million dollars. let me say that again. $325 million. that is the current powerball jackpot. it's enough to make my voice crack. what would you do with that money? think about it. with verizon. hurry in this friday for great deals. like the droid razr by motorola in cranberry, free. or a white 7-inch samsung galaxy tab 2, just $99.99. this friday, get the best deals on the best devices on the best network. exclusively at verizon. that's her "huge savings" face. yeah. don't worry, i get it all the time.

" with representative jesse jackson jr. -- also on the congressional front, allen west, the tea party- backed african-american in florida who lost his reelection writes today in the "washington times" -- he said that his lawyers saw no way to the effect the outcome of that recounts in the district. so that's this morning. also, the front page of the washington times has a lengthy piece about the what is causing the recovery in the united states to sputter. so those are some other stories for you this morning. we will keep looking at the newspapers as we get your thoughts on our question for all of you, which is in the washington times and the new york times this morning, front- page stories about one-party rule. the washington times asked if is a cure for gridlock. looking at state legislatures. michael on the line. caller: thanks for taking my call. i voted democrat in the last election and i have grown to regret. i would like to say this to all the voters out there. whether you are democrats, republican, independent, it does not matter. what matters is the people that elected officials to represent
mitt romney, nick saban and phil jackson have all had some blows dealt to them this week, i've just got the fever. so to see the new england patriots go down as well will just be too much for words for me. >> well, that's just hateful. >> i know. hey, that's part of what sports is. i've got to say what i'm most excited about is the resurgence of adrian peterson. nobody is talking about this enough. i was at fedex field last year when adrian peterson's knee was turned into coleslaw. this was last christmas. it was a one-year rehab. he is leading a very mediocre nfl team, the vikings, into the playoffs. an amazing running back. he is doing in-season rehab on his knee while he's leading the nfl in rushing. no one's ever seen anything like it before. and to see him come back stronger than ever is a sight to behold. >> and who's on his way to being coach of the year? >> oh, rex ryan. no, i'm just kidding. not really. i mean, i do think you've got to look at -- it's a really good question. i think that mike smith with the falcons. >> you have no idea, do you? >> i just didn't hear it in your
." >> at fandango folks are saying this is the one they are most excited to see and that's because peter jackson is back, and this is the first of three movies that he's doing, so this takes the book and they have hate it into three movies. a lot of technological advances people are talking about, and the whole cast is back, ian mckellan and cate blanchett. >> the other movie, "the impossible," hadn't heard about it. >> a lot more before weeks go by. this is the true story of a family that actually got caught in the thailand tsunami in 2004. they are played in the movie by naomi watt, ewan mcgregor and three young boys. what's fascinating is you're looking at the prelude to the tsunami scene right here. the tsunami scenes are so horrific and so realistic looking, but once you get past that, there's the wave. once you get past that it's the story of survival, and it's actually really inspirational. >> wow. >> tough to watch. >> you have to watching that little bit there. something a little lighter, comedies getting buzz, "the guilt terrorism". >> i cannot wait for this one. barbra streisand, who
on to diane in jackson, mississippi plans to set predicts spend the same period cal. caller: i didn't not get a chance to spend much with the economy the way it was. it was slow at my job and got laid off a lot. i said with elderly people -- i sit with elderly people. work has been really, really slow and i could not be spending a whole lot of money but i would love to now. after this holiday, if it picks up maybe next year, i hope i will give a little bit more. host: did you go out shopping this morning? caller: i went yesterday. host: christmas shopping? caller: i bought my grandbaby some stuff. host: what were the lines like guest today? caller: it was ok but i had to really budget my money. i had to buy some cheap stuff. host: did you find good deals? caller: i did, i cannot complain. i would like to add to this -- i agree with the lady that got through speaking just before about the economy and how the system works. i understand what obama did when he said he had to make the cut with a higher tax payers. i feel if we take more from the people who have the most and put it into the ones wh
